Comfort Scrapping

I've been in a bit of a funk this week, both in the craft room and out.  I decided I really needed a boost of some kind.  Maybe something like this . . .

No, I'm not talking about comfort eating . . . (I actually gave up sugar recently, and in some ways, I've never felt better, so not only am I not at )

I'm talking about comfort scrapping! This is the May inspiration for Scrapbook Boutique.  We're talking white, pink, gold and BUTTERFLIES!! YAY!

I got to play with some fun things on this page.  My gelatos, some Wilna Furstenberg "print and cut" files, and an old favourite of mine, embossed vellum butterflies.

To match the inspiration  piece, I stamped the butterflies using Brilliance "Galaxy Gold" and embossed with "Sparkle" embossing powder, which is clear with glitter. Nice.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great weekend!
